Yup.. 11 meter conditions have alot more to do with solar weather than our actual weather systems moving through. The summer time sporadic E is winding down now.. unfortunately. 10 has been pretty dead as well.

Being at the bottom of the solar cycle is a bummer.. makes one appreciate the once in a while openings on 10/11 a lot more. When the cycle is up and dx is rolling day in and day out we tend to take it for granted.

You can say that again, a few years ago when the conditions were good I got into CB and I thought it was normal. I remember as a kid in the 70s there was always a bunch of people on every channel. Now it's gone, and not coming back anytime soon....... But it WILL come back, right? Just like it always does?

Get on 75 meters, and never be lonely again. I'm amazed how much traffic is on 75 meters. In the afternoon or evening just barely turning the VFO you will go right over 3 or 4 conversations.

I like listening to the big AM stations on my grandfather's Hammerlund. Time to get my ticket for sure!
